5 This Post Has Nothing To Do With Running Whatsoever


OK, every once in a while I like to purposely stray off topic. And this is just one of those times. ;-)

First of all, I just wanted to encourage my fellow bloggers to join the Million Blog List Project. (BTW, if you're curious, this blog is #1043 on the list.) Of course, the goal is to reach 1 million blogs, but it's also a directory where you can get more visibility for your blogs. So check it out!

Also, I just wanted to encourage the rest of my blogger pals out there who aren't already connected to me via Facebook or some other social networking communities (you know who you are), to befriend me on these communities, if you haven't already done so. To find me on these social networks, just click on any of the links on the Wink widget at the bottom of the right sidebar of this blog & that'll take you to the corresponding profile page where you can befriend/link to me.

Another great idea for bloggers is to use this blog's Wink bar as a checklist for the social networking communities you'd like to join! ;-) The more places to list your blog(s) the better, right?! ;-) Just thought you might find this tip helpful!

Speaking of which, if you have a particularly good blog directory resource you'd like to share, one which isn't already mentioned here on this blog, you're more than welcome to share it with us here in the comments section of this post. I'm sure that the bloggers who hang out here would certainly be grateful for the tips! Thanks!

And lastly, one final piece of blogging-related information. This is addressed primarily to those of you blogger pals who regularly frequent this blog, comment regularly, &/or regularly converse with me via email &/or online chat: If you happen to be Whovians & love discussing all things Whovian, please let me know in the comments section of this blog! (If you don't know what a Whovian is, then just forget that I mentioned it in the first place. ;-) ) Let's have a bit of fun to see who gets what I'm talking about: If you understand the reference, just mention the "code word" from Season 1 or 2, & I'll let you in on what this is all about. Very cryptic & mysterious, eh? ;-)

Dr Who? Couldn't get into that show...

Have you ever watched the new Doctor Who series (which began in 2005)? It's a very different show from the original/classic Doctor Who (from 1963 onward).

Do you like sci-fi in general?

Thanks for the heads-up on the Million Blog List. I have the prestigious honor of being #1408 ;) A good find.

Keep cruising on your CT5K, and see you on twitter!

Hi hellasound,
You're welcome! Glad you found the MBL useful! I checked out your website; a very cool idea. Would be curious to hear more about your running exploits. Are you a former CT5Ker? ;-)

yep, that's how my wife and I got into running about 5 to 6 years ago--a similar program was online at the time. We were doing mostly weight training (which was what I was used to) and elliptical for cardio, and decided to take the leap into running. I saw no real need to put on a lot of muscle mass going into my 30s, especially given my career--a QWERTY keyboard or guitar fretboard rarely requires a bench press of 275, you know?

Since then we've run some 5ks, a 10k (which I ran with virtually no training due to injury from an ill-advised attempt to use orthotic inserts early in my training schedule...bad plan).

Now we're training to run a half-marathon in this year's San Francisco Marathon. We're running for the American Liver Foundation's Run For Research: . A great cause, plus, I know the Wellness Coach quite well...;). We're excited to participate in such a great event.

A rarely write about my own running/training; the Hella Sound blog is usually about fitness, gear or music information, with a focus on the running community instead of my own training. But I love to hear about those who blog about their running, and try to feature them as often as possible.

Keep it up! Thanks for checking out the site, and see you online!
